Boston Red Sox

The team coped brilliantly with the difficult task, beating the Yankees in 2 out of 3 games (3-2, 2-3, 3-0). This success did not help Boston to return to the American League wild-card zone.

Expert Betting Tips
Boston gave up a lot of energy in the series with the Yankees, and Alex Cora's team might not be entirely focused for the first game against Pittsburgh. At the same time, the Pirates will be energized by their long-awaited return from the road and may very well beat the Red Sox in the series' first meeting. In addition, Boston's starting pitcher has been having a lot of trouble of late as the pitcher has allowed at least three runs in 6 of his last seven games. Boston's only hope is to rely on its super offense.
